Horse on Montague Track
The horse in this picture is warming up at the Montague race track, circa 1930. It's necessary to warm up the horses so their muscles don't stiffen and their bones don't break.
Montague is located in the eastern part of Prince Edward Island. The Montague race track was a matinee track. A matinee track is a small track in the middle of a field. People who owned horses took them to the track in the afternoon. They raced just for fun, with no betting.
The Montague race track is not in existence anymore. Harness racing was and still is a very popular sport on Prince Edward Island.
